2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 2

doing whole 30 image12For the next 30+ days, I will be eating meat, vegetables, healthy fats, fruits and nuts. I will not be eating processed food, sugar, dairy, grains or legumes, and I won’t be consuming any alcohol.

This is not my first Whole30, but this time I want to focus on a couple of specific elements: 1) fewer nuts as snacks and 2) fewer snacks in general. I would like to find the right mix of meals and pre-/post-workout fuel to keep me steady throughout the day.

If you’re doing a Whole30 or other challenge, if you are living/exploring the Paleo lifestyle, or if you are simply looking for some tasty recipes to add to your repertoire, be sure to leave a comment to let me know you’re out there! I am so glad you stopped by!


This week’s focus: Drink lots of water or tea.

5:00 Black coffee

7:00 Collard greens, 2 eggs, 1 oz. chicken and gravy, 1/4 avocado

10:30 Post-workout Egg and 1 meatball on lettuce leaf

1:00 Korean carrot salad, West Lake soup, Chicken handroll, banana, black coffee

8:00 West Lake soup, 2 chicken handrolls with veggies

Food For now, the food seems easy. I have been trying some new recipes, which always invigorates me, and I don’t seem to have any lingering cravings.

Mood Confident. I am riding the high of the end of 2013 and fast-approaching 2014. I love the new year!

Sleep 7 hours. Still feeling tired and like I need more. I am playing catch up.

Activity CrossFit, 20 minutes. Worked hard, got sweaty, but I’m still trying to recover some of my energy from being sick.

Focus Lots of water – all good.
